Ideal for near beginners, A bordo takes learners up to the equivalent of GCSE level Spanish. The course book is accompanied by three audio-cassettes which include drama and dialogue. Features include:
* focus on both Spanish and Latin-American culture
* emphasis on communicating in everyday situations
* varied exercises, with answer key and progress resumé at the end of each unit.
A bordo is the preparatory course for En rumbo, also devised by the Open University Spanish team (see below).
